Need help...Where to buy???

I have a Highrock front Bumper on my TJ Bestop 42917-01 - HighRock 4x4™ High Access Front Bumper for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec and would like to add a winch. Aparently there is a plate that comes with this bumper to hold the roller fairlead. Since I am the 2nd owner, I don't have this plate. So far I haven't been able to find anywhere to buy it seperately from the bumper.

Here is a pic of the plate:

Any ideas where I might find one?

I haven't spotted that particular mounting plate sold separately, but I have seen a number of other plates in various designs. Example:

I imagine you can measure the space your bumper has for a mounting plate and compare it with plates you come across online to see if you can find something compatible.

If all else fails, you can always sell the bumper on craigslist and buy a new one with the winch mount.

i was thinking maybe I could try and have a machine shop make me one, but I'm not sure how to finish it with something durable. Maybe powdercoat??

I'm in the same situation. I got it off CraigsList and it did not come with that piece. Have you tried Bestop?

Piece of scrap metal, have a shop bend it for you and then you coat it with some spray-on bedliner. That would work just fine.

Its just for the roller fairlead? And sandwiches between the winch and the bumper, correct?

I can easily make you one and ship it to you, as long as your winch mounting holes are 10"x4.5"

Update:

Bestop will sell you one directly if you call them at 1-800-845-3567.

It will cost $19.95+$8.00 S/H.

Seems a little steep but might be worth it for the ease factor.
